LIFE CYCLE OF TREE: FLOWERING 7/12: Illustration
It's the 4th week of July and from today onwards, Singapore will revert to Phase 2 of COVID19 restrictions; dining out is no more allowed and social gathering group size will be reduced from 5 to 2 pax. Only after a week of liberation and we are back to Phase 2 for a month.
How are you coping, my friend, with this constant change?
With the tightened restrictions kicking in, I began to spend more time reading on Libby, a reading app by National Library Board (NLB) Singapore. It has a great collection of books that you could find in a physical book store and it's absolutely FREE! At times, I will also visit the nearest library to grab some interesting titles and learn new things that might be of my interest. In times like these, it's probably a great time to pick up new skills and be prepared for future opportunities, even though the restrictions from this COVID pandemic might be like a long waiting game towards gaining back our freedom.
Thanks to the wide selection of book titles in NLB, I managed to borrow this beautifully illustrated book that inspired me to colorfully pimp up my illustration skills in the near future.
My goal to pick up the skill to illustrate is pretty straightforward: to obtain the ability to illustrate a meaningful piece of art through utter mundane that will inspire people to think deeper. I have listed a few illustrators who inspired me to show you what I mean. Here's the January till June recap on my illustration practice/ progress.
Week 1: A journey to create a variety of eco-wrappings from daily life object
Week 2: A complete handbook for a beginner or for friends who want to learn natural dye and Ayurvastra
Week 3: A full mending story with needlework on CC's dress
Week 4: A diary about practicing illustration skills from scratch

I'll see you in the first week of August. It's time for me to prepare a nice meal and catch some silly show in the later part of today.
Lastly, thank you for being here and a part of my flowering journey.
Your flowering season is yet to come,
